  • Car Drop off/Pick up: For safety reasons, please observe these expectations. Thank you! ONLY drop off/pick up your student in the middle lane. You are always welcome to use the Community Center parking lot. NEVER use the Bus Lane to drop off or pick up.
  • State Assessments: The David Douglas School Board has decided that our David Douglas students will not be taking the Math, Reading/Writing, and Science State Assessments. However, we are going to give Reading and Math Inventories to gage students’ levels. These inventories will not be graded.
  • Student Schedule, Meal, and Bus Information: We are getting lots of questions about these three topics. This information will be on the front page of the FL website and FLMS Facebook page. Feel free to call the office with questions (503-256-6511). Thank you!
  • Asian American/Pacific Islander Month: During month May 2021, please join in honoring and celebrating. Our collective actions to learn and grow helps our DD community thrive. Currently, our district K-12 data indicates that 1424 (15.1%) of David Douglas students identify as Asian. An additional 240 (2.5%) students identify as Pacific Islanders. This data information is reported based on the self-identification of a student during our initial registration process.

Our staff can expect an AAPI Heritage Month slide deck every week this May. The primary goal of our weekly
slide deck resources is to deepen our own collective understanding. By broadening and deepening our
knowledge base, our team will be better prepared to support our students, families, and community.

Mr. Pease, Principal,
